77149: Damien, Hellborn Wizard

Recommended Posts

A double act! These were done for a D&D Adventurers' League game at UK Games Expo - Korozîl the trickster cleric (left), and Aazîl the swashbuckler (right) - twin tiefling brothers.

For Korozîl, I chopped off the wizard staff and drilled out the left hand. The crossbow was a Mirliton spare, with the bulky string replaced with some guitar string.

 

For Aazîl, I chopped both hands off(!) and replaced them with the hands from a 77022 Michelle. I also chopped the curved blades off those swords and replaced them with cut down metal blades from Mirliton. The scabbards (also Mirliton) had to be filed a bit to get them to fit together crossed over; their straps are narrow masking tape.

 

Paints were enamels over Vallejo acrylic primer. This was my first proper attempt at NMM on the swords, and I'm reasonably pleased with how they turned out. The skintones were interesting - I'm not sure how long it took to get the chests right! I wanted to do something more with the bases but ran out of time before the Games Expo, so just gave them some paint and static grass.

 

All in all, I'm very proud of these two!

And the D&D game was great (Korozîl died horribly and ended up slightly undead)!

Yeah Bones are awesome for conversions, actually today I cut a lioness to pieces to make a saddle for my dinosaur.

 

Bones are nice and cheap for such things

LOL - out of curiosity, how does one end up "slightly" undead?

We attacked a hag (pro-tip: don't do this) and he got blasted with lightning. Through the power of DM magic (and the fact that we had another session booked), he was returned to life with the curse of turning into a skeleton at night and being able to walk through walls! The downside being that things like Turn Undead would work on him, which sadly we never got to see! We were playing Curse of Strahd, so it fit right in.

Nice! I especially like the dual wielder. He looks badass.

I think he's my favourite of the two as well (which is a shame, as I was playing the other!). I really enjoyed making such different characters from the same base mini. Definitely something I could stand to try again...

Curses are fun.

      I loved this sculpt from the moment I saw it. I absolutely could not wait to paint it. But I was intimidated by it for a variety of reasons. I didn't like most of the color schemes I initially chose, and repainted him several times. I wanted a decent base for him (I greatly regret not rebasing Cthulhu, for example), etc. etc.  
       
      But then things just kind of came together and I painted the beastie a little bit at a time over the past few days... and I'm really happy with the outcome!
       
      C&C appreciated -- this guy was unexpectedly challenging for me, so there's probably oppo for improvement here. :-)

      Frost Giant Court - King, Queen, and Guards are from earlier KS (I believe), Rangers are add-ons from Bones 4. C&C welcome. Will post close-ups of rest tomorrow.

      Since I’m wrapping up Deladrin, here is the next in the queue.  Devona, Female Wizard.  She’s a curious wizard with plate mail leggings, a chain mail skirt, and a staff that looks more like a spear.  Also, is her torso adorned with a breastplate?  Or is it part of her dress?  And what’s up with the scalloped things on her back?
       
      Not sure what I’m going to do with her.  I hope you enjoy the process of discovery tagging along with me.  The one thing I have decided is to try to give her more of an East Indian skin tone.

      Hello forum friends, wanna share with ya'll my most recent painted mini. We have a lot of time atm to hobby hard! :D
      Tryed new tecnics on this bad boy (well new for me) like loaded brush, mixing colors right on the mini etc. Took me way less that layering and glazing, obvious the quality is lower, but still good IMHO.
      The palette of choice is the most natural possible, lot of oranges and browns, but also some punchy color like the blue of the hairs and a bit of red.
      Also used some dry pigments on the base... not good result, but still accetable for tabletop.



      Any C&C is welcome, let me know if you like it.
      Thanks for watching :)
